When I scrapbook I try to think in layers. I always start with a cardstock base (that gets all covered up) then I layer patterned papers and photos and so on .... In this layout I not only layered all those elements but the embellishments as well. Notice how I layered the adhesive rhinestones in the center of the gem flowers. Layering the different colors allowed my gem flowers to really jump off my page.
Happy scrapping, enjoy the deal of the month and get layering .... Summer :)
